    Search with quotes breaks search

    I've been trying to search for a specific string ("mac mini") but the search tells me that this doesn't fit the minimal search length of three words. Yet... mac mini works just fine, even though it's two words. Is the search borked or does it just not support string searches?

    I am a huge jerk

    So I was trying to sell a laptop here, but it got sold on Amazon first, to a guy that frequents FS/FT! I got the email Monday night and didn't notice it until Tuesday afternoon. Because of how long my commute is (~1 hour of mass transit) I wasn't able to start preparing to send it out until 7:30...

    Maybe making the heathen change to a pre-built, again, looking for brand suggestions

    A few years ago I got a Velocity Micro, and decided to upgrade a few specific parts in January. Well 9 months later I've got what seems to be a dead motherboard, but they can't tell me for sure. With the back and forth of problems in the past few weeks I'm considering selling off the rest of...

I was understandably concerned when it took a full week (business and calendar) for my payment to go through. Then about a...

    Possible Woot-off Thursday night
